EP 14 Aokigahara Forest

On tonight’s episode we discuss a very sensitive subject. One that’s very personal to both of us. If any of our listeners are in a dark place, remember dark times pass. If you need to talk to someone please call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255

Tonight we discuss the history and Folklore of the Aokigahara Forest in Japan. We can’t discuss this forest without discussing its other name… The Suicide Forest. Each year dozens (up to hundreds) of people make their last pilgrimage to this forest to never leave. Here in the GraveYard we wanted to know why this place holds the stigma that it does and the history behind these pilgrimages. And also dive into some of the lore surrounding the ghosts of Aokigahara.
